The Thursday Remix (‘Strategy Edition’)

…bigger question the commoditization of strategy begs is this: what is the next great shift in value creation? What is the next great paradigm that will shape how the people that own resources – corporations, entrepreneurs, capitalists – think about how to create value from them?…

…What I need is a player that is not owned by a company that intends to execute its business model on me with it. I want a player that is by the people, of the people, and for the people...

…If a label is strong in pop/rock and hard rock — which Warner Music Group certainly is — it is more likely to have greater market shares for digital albums and digital tracks. Label rosters that are heavy in R&B, soul, country and hip hop are less likely to have greater digital market shares because those genres historically have not had strong digital sales…

I’m introducing a new feature — An Editorial Makeover. It’s a Content Edit — a Before and After — where you can look over my shoulder. Every editor edits differently. You won’t agree with all of my choices. That could make for great conversation…

…So I’ve been doing some thinking and it appears to me as though it might be time for me and my same birthday friend to finally spend some time together, and get to know each other. I mean it doesn’t make any sense for us to be planning two different parties on two different coasts when we could just get together and maybe our friends could be friends if you know what I’m saying. So come on B, get out the shower and let’s plan our party!

    coming from you that’s a compliment!

  3. Liz Strauss Says:

    This edition was packed with good ones and the photos are so clever. Thanks for including my makeover. That guy could still use a few revisions, but then I said no agrees with all of the choices.

    Once again you are the master.

  4. chartreuse Says:

    Wow, I just love compliments. Liz, can I get you to whisper stuff like that to me all day? 🙂

    I love your makeover idea. Your site continues to be a must read. Just don’t use this site as an example of bad editing no matter how many submissions you get!

  5. Miss Ahmad Says:

    Well I’m thinking I might need an editorial make over, hopefully Liz will consider using some of my work:-)

    whisper, whisper, handsome, dashing, wonderful writing, takes my breath away, whisper gasp

    I loved this one!

    Send it on over Miss Ahmad!

    You beat me to linking to that excellent Same Birthday Friend post but I refused to let it go without a link anyway. My wife can do whatever she wants with her 8/15 SBF Ben Affleck and I’ll keep my 2/2 Shakira. Obviously I totally win on this deal.

    And after I come out of Shakira if I see my shadow it will be 6 more weeks of winter.
